Hi everyone. Today is the start of the Happy Little Stamper's August Sketch Challenge.
I don't have any pennant stamp or banner stamps, so this stumped me for a little while. Then I finally came up with this idea viewing the sketch upside down. Hmmm ... looked like hills with trees to me, albeit rainbow-coloured trees. :)
For my card, I masked the sides of my card front with large post-it notes, and also cut out my snowbank die with another post-it note to use for my hills. The trees were inked with light green and then used a darker green marker to randomly add some interest to the trees. I huffed on the stamp to moisten it, stamped once, and then stamped again to create a faded tree in the background (second generation stamping). I do love this technique.
I used a sponge to add definition to the snow banks. I added a stamped and popped up sentiment to finish.
I hope you'll check out the challenge blog HERE to see the wonderful and creative cards done by the rest of the Design Team. And I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge!
